   Bloody Old Bat
 

 Ben’s going bats over his jungle discovery.

The delighted chiroptorologist has captured the worlds first example of a giant tube nosed bat
 In a fine mesh mist net that Ben strings out each night in a mangrove swamp.

 Its nostrils stand out on little tubes from its face; twice the usual size with completely different markings on its fur.
 He told ridiculous stories about them getting caught in women’s hair.
 
 People think I’m a bit batty myself, up to my knees in a smelly mud swamp full of malaria mosquitoes
 Ben examined the chewed white contours of his bitten fingers,
 And when he smiled you could see the blood dripping from his fangs.
